This weekend, we're traveling back to the early 80s -- 1981 to 1983 to be exact. Why we didn't include 1980, I'm not sure. It might be because Doug Mosher said something to the effect of that 1980 was a crappy year. I don't know why, and not really interested enough to ask.

Anyway, 1981 to 1983 produced some great music from the rock side. Queen, Foreigner, Rush The Police, Tom Petty and Judas Priest all came out with rockin' music during those years.

This weekend, let's get back into the mindset of the early 80's and remember the awesome music that came out of that time.

We’re always looking for ideas for Classic Rock theme weekends, so if you have an idea you’d like us to feature for a weekend, let us know.

Have a Rock and Roll Weekend, and remember to take 99.1 The Whale wherever you go, so you won’t miss all that great Classic Rock. We give you three ways to listen –  on your radio at 99.1 FM, online at and on your mobile phone with radioPup.
